Here's an edit for context:

One of the developers flagged this review as abusive [i.imgur.com] and left a different developer response than the one below. The current developer response is a separate developer apologizing for the original developer's comments and behavior.

The original review continues below:

Ultimate Fishing Simulator supports controller input but it does not show controller button prompts in the UI. The game will continue to tell you to press keyboard and mouse buttons while you are using the controller. I found it to be difficult to play with the controller because of this.

My response to developer's original comment:

There's no set rules for game tags on Steam. Assassin's Creed Odyssey, MONSTER HUNTER: WORLD, or Stardew Valley, for example, are listed as "Partial Controller Support" and those games all support the controller with UI controller button prompts and nearly native support.

The developer's first (original) response:
Originally posted by hubertmroz:

Publisher statement
At the beginning I have to admit, that person which reported and originally responded for your review wasn't right and I would like to apologize you.

Steam says clearly:
Partial Controller Support
Games with Partial Controller Support may require a keyboard and mouse from time to time, during installation or for limited interactions.


You write that the problem concerns UI/HUD, which is the so-called "keymap". My guess is that in the case of the tutorial the problem looks similar and the whole brings to one:

The new player is not able to figure out which button on the controller is responsible for. It must be discovered by trial and error alone.

And it should not look like this. This review is talking about user-friendly UI that is something different than "Partial Controller Support" which is saying about in-game interactions, not content displaying.

I will talk with the person responsible for this. For your information:

You don't have to worry about anything. The flagged review is only for Valve (steam) employees to check the review. They decide what to do with such a review - whether to delete it or leave it. In your case, a review was wrongly flagged as "abusive".

Continuing this thread, I would like to point out that Valve is very reluctant to interfere with user reviews. In the vast majority of cases, reviews are left intact. To be moderated, the user must violate the steam platform regulations in a glaring way. Examples of restricted behaviors are included in "Rules and Guidelines For Steam":

I would like to apologize again and if I could help you somehow, you can contact me by email rafal@ultimate-games.com

Once again, I apologize for the misunderstanding and wish you a Happy New Year.

Kind Regards,
Rafał - Project Manager
Ultimate Games S.A.
